Politeness At Dinner Table

During one of her daily classes, a teacher trying to teach good
manners, asked her students the following question: "If you were on
a date having dinner with a nice young lady, how would you tell her
that you have to go to the bathroom?"

Robert replied, "I'd say: Just a minute, I have to take a wiz."

The teacher responded by saying, "That would be very rude and impolite.
What about you, Sherman, what would you say?"

Sherman said, "I am sorry, but I really need to go to the bathroom. I'll
be right back."

"That's better, but it's still not very nice to say the word 'bathroom' at the
dinner table." She next turned to the class smartass.

"And you, little Brian, can you use your brain for once and show us your
good manners?

Brian replied, "Sure, I would say: Darling, may I please be excused for a
moment? I have to shake hands with a very dear friend of mine, whom I
hope to introduce you to after dinner."
